If lockhold tries all that sloppy spinning back kicks and awful stand up he's going to sleep early.

That was a surprising move from Luke. Why bother stepping up like that. It's all gonna get taken care of in the Octagon.

Think it be better to see a UD from Vitor or a championship round finish. That would show me how well conditioned Vitor is and how mentally strong he is presently. Anything past three rounds usually favours his opponents and this is coming from a pretty big Phenom fan.

Wonder if Luke is going to try to do what Randy did in their first encounter. Regardless as long as Vitor fights a smart game plan and not blow his load he should take this.

Hoping Rockhold can pull off the win, we need some new blood in the MW division.

I love the roid rage. Vitor has been really ripped...Ima attribute it to Dolce and his new found faith + training.

He does seem reborn with some pretty stellar showings as of late.

To test his will power this needs to go to the championship rounds.

What No_Mercy said. What assh0le move by Rockhold.
If I would step in the octagon and even during the pre fight I would chose always to be humble. Why? Simple. I could get my ass kicked anytime. And who wants to take a beat and look like a fool in the same time? I think the most ridiculous thing is to overdo a tough face or even worse, to get disrespectful or aggressive toward your opponent and say you are gonna do this and that and dominate, bla bla bla and BLAM!!! You are a fool now...

So true. Did ya see Overeem's documentary after that fight. The only person who seemed immune to that was Ali and Wand for a fairly long stretch. Ali would talk soo much trash and then proceed to thrash his opponents.

But yah I'd prefer the low key approach til game time unless I was pretty amped up.

Not very good reason. He has had like 1 fight go past 1.5 rounds in last 6 years. That one was Bones and he gassed (not to blame him as Bones on top will gas many). But he has 1 3 round fight since them in a win over a can. He has few fights in the last handful of years that can point to any decent cardio. How can you say he has better cardio now a days when his fights don't go long?? His cut to 185 is very tough on him.

I like Belfort to win in the first or 2nd like usual. I think the longer it goes, the more it favors Rockhold for sure.

Its such a lame fight because deep down we know one guy is cheating and being allowed to compete still.

I am torn. I really don't like Vitor but I also want to see Rockhold knocked off of a pedestal I don't think he deserves because of the Jacare robbery.
